7.17pm Sri Lanka will be the happier team right now even though Pakistan have pulled them back in the last five-six overs. At one point, though, when Sanga was dropped, Pakistan were looking at a total of around 220. Sanga then broke free, and went from 50 off 99 to 97 off 130. No team has ever chased more than 246 successfully against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka. This total is just within that limit. Pakistan's innings begins at 7.45pm

Umar Gul to Thirimanne, OUT, Finally somebody hits the stumps direct when it matters. Low full toss, near yorker, dug out to point, tries to steal the single, Afridi hits the non-striker's end's stumps down. Beats him by half a frame. On the line when the bail comes off. Afridi is pretty thrilled with this

HDRL Thirimanne run out (Shahid Afridi) 13 (12m 9b 1x4 1x6) SR: 144.44

Umar Gul to Thirimanne, SIX runs, Thirimanne has slog-swept him for a six. No respect for quick men. And this is right in the slot. On a length, on leg, and he gets down on a knee, and lofts him over midwicket

Stays over the wicket
